If you get a frantic call from SK & he explains that he found me Elvis-Style, don't let your mind wander. It wasn't a drug overdose. It wasn't from a good whack on the head. It was plain ole Motherhood. Tell him to not spend money on any fancy "How'd She Kick It" test. Just calm him down & tell him I couldn't take it. Tell him my mind just exploded from questions! How'd that tree get there? What does he want? Milk? Juice? How'd the baby get into the belly? Why do we have to eat? Are you poopy? Etc. Etc. Etc.
Good god people! Motherhood might kill me. Sometimes I find myself wondering how I'm going to make it until they're both 18. But after today, I might have figured something out. It's something that everyone else has already been doing for years! Something that our family thinks is an insane concept. It's called the bathroom door!
Growing up, our bathroom doors only functioned as towel holders. We never shut the door. Locks, what?! I think that our doors only started to close when the Husbands came around. We'd carry on full conversation while peeing. And when the husbands did come, anyone would still barge in to ask or get anything. I still never shut the door, but that has to change. Sure, Tuck is being helpful by giving me toilet paper. Sure, Gus is trying to educate himself by asking "How are basketballs made?" But I don't need help getting paper and I don't even know how basketballs are made! What I do need is some alone time. And the bathroom is now going to function as my tiny little oasis.
My two projects are really boring to blog. Ulmus is a clever little knit. I love the slipped stitches & the color combo, but I've got a long way to go. The Featherweight cardigan is finished to about 2 inches past the armholes. So it's back n' forth from here out. The Malabrigo Sock yarn is still delicious. Every time I pick it up, I get excited to let it run through my fingers. Ava is looking for some & I can only hope that she find a big stash of it here in Ohio. Cause if she does, I'm adding some to my stash.
p.s. I was going to mention this, but now it seems like a good idea since Ava added a new picture to our Flickr account. Add us as a Flickr Contact & be entertained by some photos. I've been using our Family account a lot lately, but there are some photos that might alarm our Family. Even though the bathroom functions like the family room at our parents' house, Mom would still have some concerns seeing me sitting on the toilet with yarn at my feet. She won't get it, so I'll save her from this photo. She'd also be alarmed with this post. "I never felt like that & I had 4 kids," is what she'd say. Good for you.
